Glock or revolver fully loaded. My trigger finger is the safety. Pistols are defensive, close range weapons and shouldn’t have a manual safety.

Good morning and welcome to the community Randy. In my opinion, pretty solid choice in the G19. I really like my G19 gen 4 myself.

Stay safe out there.

Condition 1 for daily IWB carry pistol, and condition 3 for nighstand/home defense pistols, but none of my carry or home defense pistols have manual safeties. I always keep the carry pistol holstered between my belt and the safe and vice versa.

Condition 1 for all handguns. Cruiser Ready for long guns and shotguns.

Stay safe out there.

My readiness condition? Draw, then fire as necessary until the threat is neutralized. Why? Because the bad guy intent on doing me or my family harm is not going to wait for me to insert a magazine, chamber a round, disengage the safety, etc.

It varies. Some weapons I carry as 1, sometimes as 3, sometimes as 4. It depends on the circumstances.

I carry 3 sometimes because I’m not always comfortable carrying one in the chamber with some firearms. Even though they’re typically in a kydex holster with full coverage of the trigger some firearms I’m just not comfortable with one in the chamber. This will change over time as I become more comfortable with certain firearms and carry methods. I also have a firearm or two that carrying with one in the chamber is just not safe. Revolvers with firing pins integral to the hammer are an example of this.

Sometimes the LAW dictates how I carry. Certain states limit my options with regards to carrying a firearm and if I can carry one at all. This is typically why I’d use condition 4. It’s also how some of my weapons are stored.

In short, I adapt to my comfort level with the carry method, firearm, activities, surroundings and the laws of where I’m located.
